Tsukumo Bridge九十九橋

Bridge

The original Tsukumo Bridge was famous for its usual half-wood, half-stone construction, with the northern half being made from wood, and the southern half being made from stone. Also known by names such as Kitanosho Ohashi Bridge, the bridge has historical ties to Shibata Katsuie. Built after Katsuie took command of Kitanosho Castle, it survived for 330 years until it was replaced in 1909.

Fukui Main Areas

Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
